"More than Shahid, it was my father who was more intimidating. He is one of the best actors we have in the country, so when I got to know that I would be working with him, I was of course a little scared. There was a pressure," said Sanah
"Shahid, I have always stood up for you and now it is your turn," said Alia. During the launch of Shaandaar's first song Gulaabo, Alia had jumped to Shahid's rescue when the media asked him about his life after marriage. It was only expected that Shahid would do the same for her
Among other details spilled is this from choreographer duo Bosco-Caesar on Alia and Shahid's much-awaited part of the song: "They would only wait for that section of the song, where people would go mad doing their funny dance." Yes, we know exactly what he means
Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor's Gulaabo is enjoying a Shaandaar run on YouTube and has crossed over 2.6 million views in less than 24 hours. The song transported us to Bollywood's pink past, and so for you we retrace the thin pink line. Rose-tinted glasses optional
So, while the press conference to launch the film's first song, titled Gulaabo, on Thursday started in a Shaandaar fashion, it fizzled out completely as soon as the media asked Shahid about his bachelor party being planned two months after his wedding. Out came Alia in defence of her co-star (we'd ask defence from what? It was hardly a controversial question)
At the launch of the song Gulaabo from the film, when Shahid was asked what he gifted his wife on her birthday, he replied, "Vikas presented her a birthday gift, which was to show her Shaandaar. She came and she watched 'Shaandaar'. Even I haven't watched the film till now and Vikas has showed it only to Mira"
Gulaabo has quirky lyrics by Anvita Dutt , music by Amit Trivedi and vocals by Vishal Dadlani and Anusha Mani. Produced by Karan Johar, Shaandaar has been directed by Vikas Bahl and also features Pankaj Kapur, Sanjay Kapoor and Anjana Sukhani
The makers have reportedly received letters and emails from fans requesting them to release the first track from the film. But they were in a dilemma for a while as to which song to release first and they finally zeroed down on Gulaabo
